Inventory Tags Market Analysis

The inventory tags market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.7% over the forecast period. A barcode label or plate used for inventory tracking is applied to a product or package as an inventory tag. These tags can be used for human inventory counts or automatic counting by connecting to a network of scanners and an inventory management system (IMS).

  • Works towards normalization, growing application segments, increasing awareness of using inventory tags, augmented integration of advanced technologies to improve existing technology, and mounting knowledge among the general population are major factors that drive the growth of the global inventory tags market. Moreover, rising disposable incomes in developing economies are expected to augment demand for several retail products. This is another primary factor anticipated to propel the global inventory tags market growth.
  • Inventory tags connected to products help secure identification and tracking, reduce human error, and hence assist in effective supply chain management. Inventory tags provide detailed information about products that can later be used and even let the stock be tracked, making warehousing and logistics opt just in time for their inventories.
  • When inventory levels are chronically inaccurate, it is next to impossible to manage replenishment schedules, leading to stockouts. It also leads to poor customer experience as customers must either wait longer to receive their orders or face canceled orders once the error is realized. The average U.S. retail operation has an inventory accuracy of only 63 %. American businesses have yet to get on the proper inventory management for preventing leading to errors, lost opportunity, and increased costs. Inventory and accounts receivable and accounts payable have tied up USD 1.1 trillion in cash, equivalent to 7% of the U.S. GDP (source REL). This caters to the market penetration for the inventory tags in the region.
  • Furthermore, inventory tags are used by the hospitals to create smart cabinets where all medications or other products that are being brought into a hospital are being put. These smart cabinets sync with the hospitals' inventory management systems, making it easier for authorized personnel to locate products when required. These smart cabinets can have huge budget ramifications. After implementing an RFID tracking system, Adventist Health White Memorial in Los Angeles reduced its manual inventory counting time by 67% and costs by USD 120,000 per year by using products before expiration.
  • Furthermore, the impact of Covid-19 disrupted the supply chain distribution in significant industries., which has directly impacted the sales of inventory tags. To contain the spread of the virus, Governments in various countries imposed curfews and quarantines across the country from the end of January 2020 onwards. This has affected the economy, as many production sites closed to reduce possible contact between individuals.
